PARTS NOT REQUIRED: Keyboard and mouse (unless very cheap as the ons i use arent too good), monitor, speakers PREFERRED WEBSITE(S) FOR PARTS: www.cyberpowersystem.co.uk for a pre-built model which i would prefer, or www.dabs.co.uk for parts PARTS PREFERENCES: Quad core, GTX260 or higher, 4gb - 8gb RAM OVERCLOCKING: Maybe SLI OR CROSSFIRE: Maybe MONITOR RESOLUTION: Something that will look good, but not too expensive.
